> SPQR's "Hyperref" 

1) hyperref has been maintained by Heiko Oberdiek for many years now;
   not sure how much of Sebastian's original code remains at this point.

2) I don't expect you find it especially interesting, but for the
   record, the new Eplain 3.0 release (http://tug.org/eplain) has
   support for live url's a la hyperref.  You can also load the LaTeX
   graphics and color packages.  Among other things.
   No "simplified access to esoteric fonts" (or even non-esoteric ones),
   though.  (There's the independent package plnfss, "plain nfss",
   although I've never used it.)

Yes, good thought ...

(Dick wrote me privately mentioning he's made some decent progress
